    Because I have no time to post anything else.

    Work is just killin' me...I still want to get back to that fit & finish thing but it'll have to wait. In the meanwhile I guess some posting is better than no posting so here goes:

    If I were the captain of this ship:

    I'd wear this watch:

    Feel free to join me with your own watch associations otherwise this is going to be a 20 page thread fueled exclusively by my imagination...which should run dry around page four and by then I'll be down to items like Kleenex and antibacterial soaps (or "soups" - spell check's artificial intelligence caught that one and spared me from being associated with germaphobes). We all have our own obsessions but since I do things like eat week old meatball sandwiches I can't claim that one.

    Actually it's a Kobold from 2002 when their their watches were essentially slightly modified Chronoswisses - right down the the 38mm CH 7523 case. This is good thing since the Kobold brand (not some much any of their watches) kinda skeeves me out.

    O, I like the design alright, but then, it's a common motif with German aesthetics: many other brands also have this look.
    So, what I don't get is, why / how Mr Kobold charges so much for a classic standard tool design watch that has no other virtue - compared to, say, Damsako with their nifty super-hardened cases.
    Maybe Mr Kobold is really good with the ladies, or at golf? or both?
